Notes:Research by our Flickr Commons users established that this reliquary was likely photographed within a few years of its discovery. Dating from the 9th century or so, it may have lain for many hundreds of years in Lough Erne near Tully in Fermanagh. Accidentally discovered by a fisherman named Plunket in the 1890s, it came into the possession of the Royal Irish Academy. The RIA's collection then became the nucleus of the National Museum of Ireland collections.
